think by this hour while they're still counting votes in florida and made for the next week -- there is an even greener light. we know.what the president was reelected and democrats picked up seats in the senate which is contrary to what anybody in washington i think thought even as late as today. the house is going to stay roughly the same. absent breaking news, i bring you know prescind returns from florida. i would like to spend more time on why this has happened and what it means for us going forward. i share the admiration all around 4 president obama's campaign team. they were technically close to perfect in the first responsibility of a campaign team, that is to identify and turn out voters. the planned it and executed it, and it every step of the way, they knew what votes they needed and went out and got them. they began before election day thinking favorable votes in states where they had put people on the ground to produce. take ileus appear -- technically a superb operation. perhaps some people will think by the fourth or fifth visit -- it did work. the point i wa
him florida and north carolina, two states where he's doing well. we'll also give him virginia, with its 13 electoral votes. we're starting here with a map of other states that he would definitely get. now you've got him at 266. now he can take any one of those remaining five battleground states to win, even four electoral votes from new hampshire. that shows you why ohio is such a big deal. if we take ohio back off the map that takes him down to 252. >> of those that you just showed putting him at 266, how many of those states is he leading in? >> well, this is -- if you really want to start in his strongest positions are really in north carolina and virginia. excuse me, north carolina and florida. that only gets him to 235 if you add in the states he's already got. so that's really where he's doing the best right now. that's why his path to 270 is so tough. >> and the path for the president? >> well, the path for the president is better. you could even see a situation with the president where if he lost virginia, let's give virginia, ohio and florida to romney. then if the pr
nonstop. vice president is in colorado and paul ryan is holding rallies in pennsylvania, virginia, florida, and ohio. so ohio indeed could be the biggest battleground of the election. the race there is very tight. a just released cnn/orc poll shows obama ahead by just three points, well within the margin of error. an nbc/"wall street journal" poll shows a wider gap with obama leading by six points. president obama is about to speak at a rally in mentor, ohio. he is at least in the building, we understand. and so is our white house correspond dan loathian. the president's schedule is packed today. he isn't just campaigning. he is also keeping a close watch on the storm which he says really is his first priority. >> reporter: that's correct. white house officials saying that president did get updates, briefings overnight. this morning he went to fema headquarters in washington to get a briefing in person, to get a sense of what is taking place with regards to the flooding, the power situation. he had some of his top officials in the room with him. he also spoke via video conference with the

advocates are ready to fight if this race becomes too close to call. by 5 p.m., all of florida polls will be closed with its 29 electoral votes a grand prize in the electoral count. both candidates have led in the polls at some time with the latest one showing that they are only one point apart. also at 5:00er the polls shut down in pennsylvania a state that has been leaning towards reelecting the president. >> when we do see those results, florida, ohio, pennsylvania, we'll probably tell the tale of this election. if barack obama carries those three states, the election is for all intents and purposes over. mitt romney needs one or probably two of those states in order to fill in his electoral map. >> reporter: so governor romney's added stop in pennsylvania is really a signal that his camp believes he has a shot for those 20 electoral votes. he just started airing tv ads there a week ago. shows what you a big shift that is. but president obama's campaign maintains that they will win pennsylvania. we'll see tomorrow. >> thank you. >>> she had a suspicion and she didn't act on it. an
to sweep the whole east coast, doesn't he, at the beginning of the night? florida, north carolina and new hampshire, as well? >> yeah, he's got to sweep all the states that touch the atlantic ocean really to have a chance in this race. and i think virginia will tell us a lot. it's going to tell us if this night ended early for mitt romney or if we're in for a long night. virginia will tell us that. >> that's right, but if he wins, he still has to do well in the midwest. win either ohio or wisconsin. if we give that to president obama, where he's ahead. he is just five votes short of the 270 electoral votes he needs. all that leaves is nevada, colorado or iowa. the president ahead or tied in all three of the states. >> that's the situation that mitt romney is in. it is, he's in a very narrow path to the electoral college victory. and exactly as you laid it out. it's as if he has to draw an inside straight in this campaign in order to win tonight. he has to do all those things and the path is still narrow to win this. >> matthew dowd, we'll see you tonight. >> all right, gentlemen. >>> and
. virginia, pennsylvania, ohio, florida, iowa and nevada are all states that harbor a lot of swing voters. so folks here they want to make sure they encourage to vote democrat. >> the main thrust to all day long is to get out the vote obviously. we have been doing this for a while and today is crunch day so we want to get people ensure they are getting to the polls. >> reporter: now last night republicans were just as bessy at their headquarters in contracosta county trying to get the word out about mitt romney and they participated in phone banking and noticed a surge in republican enthusiasm. >> overnight, after that first debate, the energy level and volunteers have soared. and people have started to call and coming in and wanting to help. >> the election is very close. the polls are showing even in the race for rickey gillas within one point. >> reporter: republicans say a come from behind win is doable and they are hopeful and thefeeling among democrats that president obama needs to remain in office because they want him to finish what he started. now we are told here at the democratic h
florida, virginia, colorado, iowa, it's very close. the toughest state here to make this se ncenario work would be nevada. it's a state a that a lot of republicans and democrats slightly leans in the democratic category. but it's not an implausible scenario. if nobody got 270 then the house of representatives would decide who the president was, but the u.s. senate would vote on who the vice president was. that means the most likely outcome under this scenario is a romney/biden scenario. >> another scenario if ohio is too close to call. >> here's the problem with ohio. they have a new law that says provisional ballots, and these are ballots that are questioned there, maybe somebody didn't bring an i.d., maybe a signature is off, they will let you vote, but you get put in a separate stack. they wouldn't even start counting them until november 17th. today is still november 6th. so in 11 days, let's say the margin is less than 50,000, there's likely to be over 200,000 provisional ballots cast in ohio. they wouldn't start counting those until 11 days. . they wouldn't start counting until then.
hampshire, florida, ohio and colorado. >> i know a bunch of you already voted. >> yeah! >> but if you haven't, there's still time. >> reporter: today, he will hit more swing states, wisconsin, iowa and ohio before heading home to chicago for election day. >> after all we've been through together, we can't give up now. >> reporter: mitt romney's battleground bonanza sunday included iowa, ohio, virginia and pennsylvania. >> we're taking back the white house because we're going to win pennsylvania! >> reporter: today he will visit florida, ohio, virginia and new hampshire. >> if you are tired of being tired, not just tonight but all the time... >> reporter: both candidates saw huge crowds at their rallies this weekend. and both realize at this point it's all about getting as many people as possible into the election booth. >> that's what's going to decide this because frankly, there's very few if any undecided voters left. >> reporter: that's a fact even these candidates can agree with. >> we're no longer relevant now. we're props. ultimately it's up to you. you have the power. >> reporter: a
? >> they are still counting votes in florida and -- [inaudible] bears and even greener light. i apologize. i saw that little green light and you know, it was too subtle for me. here is what we know. we certainly know that the president was reelected and we know democrats have picked up seats in the house and the senate which is contrary to what anybody in washington i think god even as -- we know they house will stay roughly the same so with his breaking news i bring you know that returns from florida and i like to spend more time on why he did this happen and what does that mean for us going forward? first, i share the admiration all around for president obama's campaign team. they were technically close to perfect in the first responsibility of the campaign team and that is to identify and turn out voters. they planned it, they executed it and every step of the way they knew what votes they needed and they went out and got them. they began weeks before election day thanking favorable votes in states where they have our people on the ground preplanned so again technically a superb operation and
